My biggest problem right now: telling my thesis advisor that I will not be applying to PhD programs. Also my apartment is fucking gross but both me and my girlfriend are way too busy to do anything about it.

Hey, me too. PhD seems about the biggest type of hell on earth I could imagine right now. Too much responsibility, too much risk, too shitty lifestyle, too little control, no fucking speck of light at the end of the tunnel...jesus.

Please edit quote, decided I probably don't want that info floating around on the web.

reedo: Your hype consumption is just an easy example that speaks to a wider truth. Also, posting "I'm done buying I swear!" and them immediately buying 10 things does not a reasoned poster make.

Yea, that was a pretty embarrassing moment

Yeah I'm less into style than into awesome pieces of clothing. I'm more into the piece in a vacuum than in any sort of context involving me. So the "baller" threads are key to my consumption both in a consumer sense and a styleforum sense. But I'm the outlier here I'm sure.

Fundamentally I'm here to find new shit to blow money on and because this place is a source of amusement smile.gif

PhD is not so bad guys wink.gif

Well guys I just saw Holy Motors and FUCK.


Also fwiw I'm with Teger on the thumbs thing. It's funny and it was cute for a while to have little jokes in the thumb comments, but I think people are abusing it. It's moving content / discussion away from posts. Not only that, but it's a terrible system for determining how good an outfit is. I swear I get like 10 more thumbs than normal whenever I wear my NiCo boots or ToJ DR.

RFT: Sometimes I wear a cool outfit that doesn't photograph well for whatever reason and that makes me kinda sad. Wanna share some shit with you guys.

Fashion aspiration is just another demonstration of the metonymy of desire. foo.gif

Edit: this is not a serious post. (Damn this happens a lot.)

My wife does this incredible Gang's of New York villain thing way better than do I. I think that it's because she has a great face (hearl shaped) for hats. Her daily wear are APCs with Trickers Ghillies, an amazing Margiela mainline coat (raw cut silk chiffon over tweed), and a black Eugenia kim cap.

I pretty much keep wearing the same uniform as well. I've been stuck with this derbys, trousers and shirts for a quite some time and looking something fresh. Wearing the same clothes feels comfortable, but eventually gets boring. Maybe should try some nice sweatshirts / knits / velcro hi-tops.

I think teger just has a problem with reedo and stanley, I don't buy the whole I can't give you any examples bullshit.

Also, while interesting to read sometimes, lots of critical analysis is too much work to read through and that's not the primary reason I come to this forum.

This matches up pretty well with my recent purchases/ wears. I'm a little behind the SF hype cycle, and am basically wearing slightly long black light pants during the summer, and a pair of 17 oz samurai's during the winter- accompanied by boots or shoes. I have 8 items of clothing beyond white shirts, and I'm basically content. I can wear things in almost any weather, I look good in most/ all of it, and while I love buying more stuff, I don't really need to at this point. 

 

It also helps that I'm a poor college student.

Guys am I a hype-cycle victim shog[1].gif

Also reedo post another fit with the Plokhov leather, or sell it to me devil.gif
post #67154 of 98849
Teger has a problem with anyone who is new, reedo is just easy target status

It's pretty well established haha

Old SF was shite, I can remember getting flamed because I was saying the W+H tees were really good, people were raving about banana republic and j crew and jerking over photo's of Daiki
post #67155 of 98849
To be fair Daiki era WWM was pretty awesome and EG remains pretty cool
